POSTGRADUATES: GENERAL INFORMATION
Meeting the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons training objectives, the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry offers postgraduate training opportunities through SWOMEN to Schulich residents and to Ontario visiting residents through the Visiting Residents Electives Program. These rotations provide residents with opportunities to experience learning, living and working in Southwestern Ontario.
Reimbursement for travel and funding for accommodation is provided for rotations of a minimum of 4 weeks in length. Many communities have accommodation available to our residents in designated apartments or houses. It is our goal to make your experience the best possible!
SWOMEN communities provide a low teacher-learner ratio and offer a more hands-on learning experience. Nine SWOMEN Academic Directors located and working in our communities ensure you receive the Best Student Experience - our dedicated preceptors from the following specialties are enthusiastic about teaching:
- Emergency Medicine
- Family Medicine
- Internal Medicine
- Obstetrics & Gynaecology
** Sub-specialty rotation opportunities are available upon inquiry.
You will need to obtain approval for your community rotation from your Program Director.
